's not an exact science, it's a snapshot in time. we will see if governor romney can sustain this bounce. the president got one ahead of his convention. it dissipated. romney got one out of the first debate. we'll see if it lasts. this science is not exact but it's pretty darned good. if you look back over time, it's pretty darned good. when you see the conspiracy theories you have to say it's the politics of the moment. every now and then you see a poll that you say well, that doesn't look right. i look at ours every time before we put them on the air and the guys who do it for us do it just right. >> go ahead, gloria. >> anderson, i also think it actually kind of affects the campaign in its own way because as the old saying goes, nothing sticks to you like success so when you have a candidate like mitt romney who has been down, maybe some of his voters are less enthusiastic because they think oh, he might not win. suddenly, he's got the wind at his back. suddenly they're thinking gosh, maybe this guy can win, maybe i ought to turn out and vote. then his base might become more enthusias
an idea of how massive this balloon is. as far as the science, ashleigh, yes, what they're trying to see is just what the human body does when it travels the speed of sound. if the speed of sound has any affect on the body when it's just traveling in a spacesuit, that's never been done before. felix baum na felix baumgartner is about to do this. another thing they will mesh is how this high pressure suit holds up. if it does hold up and is not compromised in any way, this could be the next generation of spacesuit. those are the technological advances they hope to be able to make here with this mission. you know, just a few months ago i talked to felix baumgartner about this and with all of its inherent risks, and there are many, i asked him a key question, is he afraid of dying on this mission. take a listen. >> well, dying has always been part of my life. as a bait jumper you always face death on every base jump and so it's important you do your homework because you need confidence. you have to have confidence in your team and your skills and yourself and you always hope that you're not
train teachers, and i want to hire another 100,000 new math and science teachers and create 2 million more slots in our community colleges so people can get trained for the jobs that are out there right now. and i want to make sure we keep tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%, but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas, i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are here in the united states, on energy, governor romney and i, we both agree we have to boost american energy production and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years, but i also believe that we have to look at the energy sources of the future like wind, solar, biofeels, and make those investments, so all of this is possible. now, in order for to us do it, we have to close our deficit, and one of the things we've been discussing tonight, how do we deal wit
. each polling sort of public polling has their own art and science to likely voting and it is pretty much an art as it is a science a. lot of people had the art wrong going into the late primaries. that's why you saw early polls in the primaries being way off because you're hilikely voter didn't look like a electorate turned out. we had 11% of the general electorate in '08, so the screen was completely off. typically, you're going to undersample minorities and all these polls. that said, a big difference between a registered voter and likely voter, it's someone who says they're likely to vote high on their propensity up front on the phone call say they're going to vote and or they have some past performance in their background where they voted in one of the two or two of the three general elections. there's an art to this. on this point, i don't play the polling game back and forth, but a seven-point swing in party identification i think goes a long way to explain this. i know this is a story that the media wants to drive, but at the same time, you have a political out with a poll th
. and a lot of bad news coming out of research by the australian institute of marine sciences that as you pointed out half of the coral in the great barrier reef has declined largely due to both tropical storms, a crown of thorns starfish that feeds on the coral up to 40% declined just from the starfish alone and of course climate change and coral bleaching. >> so storms, starfish, climate change. what can we do to stop the coral loss? >> well, this is some scary news. this is much more than anyone expected. but there is a little bit of a silver lining. we believe the crown of thorns starfish in their larva stages grow faster because of runoff and fertilizer off the coast of australia. so scientists are calling for vehicler controls on that runoff going into the reef which may help to reduce the population of the crown of thorns starfish and hopefully relieve some of the pressure. they believe up to 42% of the decline of the great barrier reef has been caused by extreme outbreaks of these crown of thorns starfish. so hopefully reducing runoff can have a positive impact and allow the reef
straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> welcome back to "early start." an american astronaut about to hitch a ride with the russians up to the international space station. later this month, nasa's kevin ford will join two russian astronauts aboard a russian soyuz spacecraft that will blast them into orbit for a five-month stay. ford will join the station's current team and take over as expedition commander. this will mark for the second space flight and his first aboard a russian soyuz spacecraft. kevin ford is joining us live now from the cosmonaut training center in star city, russia, where he and his crewmates have been preparing for the mission. thank you for being with us. you will be at that time iss from the end of the month until march of next year. can you tell us what you will be doing while you are there? >> well, i can't tell you exactly what we will be doing but i can tell you what we plan to do. so we -- we hope to carry out a lot of science. we had a lot of trainin
from poll to poll. there's no science to this. polls will differ on that number, depending on what they're finding in the field and it will drive you crazy to dig deep into the poll and say this one has more democrats, this one has more republicans. look at the trends over time. we have two polls. we want ten polls off this debate, we want to know where the race really is. all we have is gallup and pew. it's showing a huge bump up for romney. all these polls have a house effect. over time they all show in the course of 2012 a little bit of an advantage for one candidate or another. rasmussen very often shows a pro-republican house effect. pew has very often shown a pro-obama effect. it makes this huge romney lead even more surprising. wait for a week's worth of polls and we'll see where the race stands. as you point out, this is the best news romney has had since before his convention. >> does this couldn't as an october surprise. >> usually october surprises is some outside event that changes the election or something -- some conspiracy that a campaign polls at the last second to advan
, first of all, the kind of science that you do for a living. you basically find out what we as people can handle when it comes to drama and exposure to these kind of horrifying, you know, events. there were crash test dummies in a lot of these seats. they were very expensive, weren't they? >> there are, about $150,000 uninstrumented. the data acquisition system needed to collect the data, all of that. we had probably at least, probably about 500,000 plus worth of instrumentation on that plane. >> you wanted to know every single ounce of data. every single knee that would get skinned on an airplane. >> exactly. because this isn't something we do every day. >> '84 was the last time you did it. >> we wanted to collect as much information as possible. and that was what was great about discovery. they allowed us to do that. they viewed this as a science experiment. >> now everybody wants to know where should i sit on an airplane? we've all heard the lore you'll die if you're in first class, you're better to be in the middle, no, the tail, then you see all of these different kind of crashes. >>
things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> welcome back. in raw politics tonight, more on president obama's performance last night in denver, as we have been reporting president obama himself knows that he lost the debate. he's upset about it. here to talk about it tonight, obama 2012 pollster, cornell belcher. also, ralph reed. cornell, bored, aloof, some said even arrogant. those are some of the words used today and last night to describe president obama on that stage. what exactly was the strategy heading into this? was there a strategy? >> what you saw last night from the president was the president trying to lay out the facts to those few undecided voters that are still out there. here's our plan, here's how we want to move the country forward versus mitt romney and his plan about moving the country forward. the problem with the debate last night is that one candidate showed up talking about the facts of their plan and the other candidate showed up with a completely different plan, and was completely dishonest about
? the truth is that highly skilled immigrants with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math, aka, the stem jobs create jobs for other americans. according to one study from 2000 to 2007 for every 100 foreign born workers who earned an advanced stem degree here in the united states and went on to work in those fields, that created an additional 262 jobs for native born americans. instead of embracing this the u.s. immigration policy sends those highly skilled immigrants many of them educated in the best american colleges and universities back home to their countries of origin so they can create jobs there competing against the u.s. by the way in the global economy. it's called the reverse brain drain. joining me is a director of research at duke university and a fellow at stamford law school and the author of "the immigrant exodus, why america is losing the global race to capture entrepreneurial talent." from 1995 to 2005 immigrants founded more than a quarter of all tech and engineering startups in united states and more than 52% of those in silicon valley. you just updated the n
and science teachers. to train 2 million additional workers at community colleges. to cut our oil imports and invest in clean energy jobs. the president has a plan to move aggressively toward creating more jobs and we need to continue moving in that direction. we can't afford to go back to the same failed economic policies of the past that mitt romney is promoting. >> melanie roussel, thank you, for joining me this morning. >> thank you for having me, randi. >>> soledad o'brien has a special documentar"latino in america courting their vote" that airs tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. eastern. we'll give you a sneak peek a little bit later this morning. >>> the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in tennessee. two teenage brothers are behind this corn maze depicting president obama and mitt romney on their parents' farm. kind of tough to see there on the screen. there you go with a closer look. $8 a pop, all viz teres a s ate welcome. those guys did a pretty good job there. >>> some hospitals are giving employees the option. get a flu shot or get fired. now, some workers are saying the mand
convictions were sed on the science that is now in question. here's susan candiotti. >> it was refreshing because i didn't think it was real. >> reporter: but it was real. until last week,ie li-- eliza johnson was doing a sentence for a drug conviction, and then she was suddenly free. >> i can breathe. >> free because of this woman. the state of massachusetts is accusing dukin of tampering with drug evidence that could call into question at least 34,000 cases going back to 2003. 34,000! at the moment, she faces only three charges. however, in boston alone, the d.a. estimates as many as 500 convicted felons could be set free. >> how big of a mess is this? >> at this point, susan, we don't know. >> reporter: at this lab now closed by the state, dukin allegedly mishandled drugs seized by police for evidence at trial. she allegedly estimated the amount of drugs at times by simply looking at them. and certified some drugs as cocaine that are now testing negative. she didn't just write down the wrong thing. prosecutors accuse her of doctoring evidence to change test results. >> she would take k

minds in aeronautical science to put this all together. so they do have everything planned out. what we're going to show you here are photo journalist mike love is going to pan over here. this is the field where they will launch a balloon with a cap actual that will take felix baumgartner. the balloon will take him to the edge of space. it's about 122,000 feet above the earth. at that point he's going to step out of that capsule and free fall for 117,000 feet wearing nothing but a high-pressure suit, a helmet, and a parachute. that's going to break the record for the longest free fall from space, and in doing so, don, he will also break the speed record. he's going to bre the sound barrier. he's going to go about 690 miles an hour. so those are two records he's going to break on this mission. >> wow. and that video is pretticle. it looks like a jellyfish, right? doesn't it look like a jellyfish. >> reporter: yeah, it does. it's something to see. >> this is really risky. >> reporter: it is very risky, don. there are a lot of things that could conceivably go wrong. we have talked to the e
skills here in the united states. so we're going to recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers, ande're going to improve early childhood education and we're going to create two million more slots in community colleges so that workers can get trained for the jobs that are out there right now. we are going to continue to do everything we need to do to cuts the growth of tuition costs because every young person in america should have the opportunity to go to college without being loaded up with hundreds -- with tens of thousands of dollars worth much debt. >> president obama is speaking probably for the first time since what many saw as a disastrous debate last night. we're going to be following the president today and also tomorrow. it's going to be another huge day for politics. it's when the latest jobs numbers come out. our own ali velshi is going to give you a look at how crucial the figures could be in the presidential race. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two mo
the transcontinental railroad. let's start the national academy of sciences. let's start land grant colleges, because we want to give these gateways of opportunity for all americans because if all americans are getting opportunity we're all going to be better off. that doesn't restrict people's freedom. that enhances it. so what i've tried to do as president is to apply those same principles. and when it comes to education what i've said is we've got to reform schools that are not working. we used something called race to the top. it wasn't a top-down approach, governor. what we've said to states, we'll give you more money if you initiate reforms. and as a consequence, you had 46 states around the country who have made a real difference. but what i've also said is let's hire another 100,000 math and science teachers to make sure we maintain our technological lead to make sure our skilled and able to succeed and hard-pressed states right now can't all do that. in fact we've seen layoffs of hundreds of thousands of teachers over the last several years, and governor romney doesn't think we need more tea

, very well by good science, it is very risky for black men to show any signs of aggression. so when a black man shows a sign of aggression, people say see? so it confirms a stereotype about black men. >> even when you're a black man who's president of the united states? >> yes. absolutely. >> you're saying this part of the debate where we're talking about the role of the federal government is notable. >> yes. what i think is interesting, this movement right here where romney is shifting from side to side, to me it looks like he's a boxer. again, it gets at this idea that romney sees this kind of as a boxing match, and he's kind of like preparing to go on by shifting his weight from side to side, he's kind of getting himself ready. you don't see obama doing anything like that. >> you have a closing two minutes. >> does that tell you anything when he wipes his lip? >> might have noticed throughout that he is sweating sort of on his upper lip, and he's aware of that and he wants to mop that away before his closing argument. so he wants to make sure that he looks really strong, and it's
in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train 2 million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- we need to cut our oil imports in half, create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work, doing me nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that is the choice in this election and that's why i'm running for a second term. that's what we need. now, my opponent, you know, has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got an extreme makeover. but -- but the bottom line is his underlying philosophy is the topdown economics that we have seen before. he thinks if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts, that, yes, skewed toward the wealthiest, if we get rid of more regulations on wall street, then our problems will be solved. jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky, the deficits will mag

nomg or science that we stable an h1b visa to them so they can stay in this country and help grow jobs here. he has always made keeping families together part of his comprehensive immigration reform. >> but he has never said that he would let these visas stand that the president just granted. >> no, no, no. what you just said to me was he said he was going to have it taken care of. meaning that he has said that among his top priorities would be working with congress, enacting a comprehensive immigration reform. of which keeping families together would be part ofhat program. so i think it's totally consistent with what he said, because it's a top priority of his to get done. and unlike this president, he would get it done in the first two years of his administration. >> it may be consistent but you do agree what he told the denver post last night is new. it is new news as we say in the news business. he's never said that before. >> well, you may be saying he never used those same words in the same sentence before. but if you go ahead and look at mitt romney dotcom where he laid out his
programs but programs that help them prepare and get ready for school and math and science and literacy. the fact that we are in this debate, this is not about the bubt. it has to be about politics. >> so tell us how much money did big bird get from the government? >> well, actually, big bird doesn't get money from the government. in fact, the money that comes from the government into the corporation for public broadcasting doesn't come to pbs, it goes to our member stations. so that is actually what is at risk if, in fact, we are defunded because the money is going to stations across the country in aggregate our money is 15% of our budget. when you look at it station by station, some stations, particularly in rural parts of the country, they are a part of the federal budget is 50% to 70%. those stations will go off the air. for people sitting in communities across the country, that is at risk. that is the consequence if, in fact, our money is zeroed out. for the 40 years of our history we have been a great public private partnership and we take the federal money and leverage that with
to recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers to train to make sure our young people have -- to make sure our young people have the skills that they need. we got to train 2 million workers at community colleges to bring down college tuition cost s. we got to cut our oil imports in half and create thousands of new jobs and energy. we got to use the savings from ending the war in iraq and afghanistan, to pay down our deficit. put some people to work, doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. that's why i'm asking for your vote. now, my opponent, he's doing a lot of -- a little tap dance at the debate the other night. trying to wiggle out of stuff he's been saying for years. doing like a -- like "dancing with the stars." or maybe it was "extreme makeover." debate edition. but no matter what he says, my opponent, he's a big believer of the top downeconomics. he thinks if we spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the althiest, we get rid
